For any driver, an important car maintenance chore is checking and changing the oil. Believe us – an oil check is a simple process.

Oil is a crucial component because it lubricates the motor’s moving parts. This lubrication reduces friction, which in turn reduces heat.

A regular oil change is an easy part of car upkeep that takes very little time, helps protect your car’s beating heart and will potentially save you money on repairs.

It can be a little messy, but the benefits to your motor far outweigh any grime factor.

Just follow our simple guide in this ‘7 Steps of an Oil Check’ infographic to learn how to change the oil in your car.

Aside from motor oil, there are other types of car fluid that may also need to be checked regularly. These include automatic transmission, radiator coolant, power steering, and brake and clutch fluid. Read your car’s owner manual and ensure you get checking as often as needed.
